BEBER, Bárbara Costa  and  CIELO, Carla Aparecida. Features of wide and narrow band spectrography as for vocal emission of men with larynx without diseases. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.2, pp.290-297.  Epub Jan 31, 2012. ISSN 1982-0216.

PURPOSE: to characterize voice spectrography of a group of young adult men. METHOD: 25 young adult men, without vocal complaints, with otorhinolaryngological larynx diagnosis without disease, have done the supported emission of the vowel [a] standing and with the usual frequency and intensity. The emission was carried thought to analyze Real Time Spectrogram of Kay Pentax®, giving a spectrogram of wide band and another of narrow band for each subject. These were doubled in order to increase the reliability of the study and were sent to three judge's language pathologists that have to do the judgment of the same following a protocol. The results were analyzed statically by a test to different from proportion with significant level of 5%. RESULTS: in the wide band spectrograph there was a statistical significance to noise present in the frequencies around 3,2KHz, a little definition of the third formants, a little regularity of the line and anti-resonance average. In the narrow band spectrograph there was weak acutely of the frequencies around 3,2KHz and in all spectrum, noise is very present throughout the spectrum and in the frequencies around 3,2KHz, noise at low frequencies median, low regularity of the tracing and anti-resonance medium. CONCLUSION: the spectrographic analyze have been developed in large portion of the noise in all spectrum and in the frequencies around 3,2KHz, little defined third formant, average noise in the low frequencies, the line being a little regular and average anti-resonance, weak acutely in all spectrum and in special, in the frequencies around 3,2KHz.
